Eagan Football

We have an exciting opportunity this spring . . . My7on7 touch football is coming to Eagan!

For players currently in 1st thru 8th grade, My7on7 is a five-week touch football league that begins mid-April with games running on Sunday's only.

Josh Anderson, our EAA Football Director along with Coach NJ (Varsity Head Coach) have been working together with My7on7 to bring this opportunity to our youth players!

Whether your child played flag or tackle this past fall, the goal is to get as many youth football players out on the field this spring. We want to fill our JV practice and Varsity fields every Sunday.
The reason for Sunday is this allows multi-sport kids to participate in both their primary (Spring) sport and My7on7.

Time commitment:
- At a minimum (weather permitting), teams will get together each Sunday.

- While some teams may choose to meet once or twice during the week for a practice, most teams arrive early for their games for a quick practice prior.

Season:
Sunday, April 11th thru May 2nd (with a preseason kick-off prior/date TBD)
Time: Games will start anytime between 3:00PM - 8:00PM and plan for 1.5 hrs
Typically, the younger grades start at 3PM with the older grades starting later.

Cost:
$99 - Early bird registration ends January 15

$115 - Jan 16 thru Mar 12
$50 - Late fee
